    Well personally I think its always best to go with option 1. I find otherwise if I try hen to hen or rooster to rooster you can have pretty hit or miss results

    No idea with option 2 as I'm afraid I only have complete birds. Not been able to get those half ones to survive real long.

    Sorry just couldn't resist.

    On a more helpful note :). You may find some info if you search genetics. I know I've read both don't inbreed and that they do so its pretty confusing.
